Such a Boy!

My little man is now 21 months old! It's so hard for me to believe that he's coming up on two when I feel as if we just celebrated his first birthday. Cam is such a boy! He loves to climb, run, wrestle & he has absolutely no fear. That lack of fear is the reason why I'm so thankful that I'm able to retouch my pictures... there are a constant supply of bruises, cuts & scrapes all over that kid's face! People probably think we beat the little monkey! And I assure you, we don't!

Cam loves to open/close doors, play with his cars, climb on the furniture & stand there with a mischievous grin on his face because he knows we don't want him there. We're starting to read our first book on discipline since we're not always sure how to handle him. When we tell him no, he often laughs hysterically & does whatever it is he's doing that much more. We're reading 1, 2, 3, Magic so we'll see how it goes. We won't implement the things we're learning until he's two, but at least we'll be armed & ready!

Cam is starting to say a ton of words which has been a lot of fun to hear. He's a pro at saying "D" words, but not such much "B" words. For instance, he waves goodbye and says, Dye, Dye! He often says that to one of us as he's shutting the door in our faces. In other words, go away & leave me alone so I can get into some trouble in privacy!

The picture above has been retouched but the pictures below have not been. You can see the cut below his eye where he scraped his face with mulch at daycare. You'll also find an array of bruises on his forehead from God knows what!

Cam is your typical, rough & tumble boy & we love him to bits & pieces! We're having so much fun watching him rapidly grow & change right before our eyes.

Anyway, hope everyone has a safe & fun holiday weekend. God bless the USA!

  2. I think Cam just doesn't care. It's his high pain threshold, just like his old man.
